EPCO Products, a Fort Wayne, Ind.-based manufacturer of bow and stern eyes for the marine industry, has introduced the Snapper Remote Control Boat Latch.
One person can use the remote control to release the boat from the trailer and, when returning, activate the Snapper latching device for a smooth hook up. The Snapper Boat Latch features a high profile LED Light Pole that indicates whether the Snapper jaws are set to receive the boat or to secure it. The Light Pole also serves as a directional guide to line up the bow of the boat with the Snapper. After the boat has been pulled from the water, all the boater has to do is attach the trailer’s winch hook to the bow eye and secure the tie-downs before driving away. Suggested manufacturer’s price was not available at press time. Contact EPCO at (800) 879-3726 or visit www.epcomarineproducts.com.
